Date & Time: 
Jan - Oct

Great evening and night fishing, with rising tide and a southerly wind. Kahawai, blue cod are caught during daylight hours and night fishing for tarakihi (January to May) and red cod (June to October).



Kontiki / Kite Fishing


Very good place to fish using Kontiki and kites. May - June, plenty of big elephant fish to be caught using squid or half pilchards tied onto hook for bait. Kahawai all year round. Have caught Warehou, Snapper, Blue and Red Cod, Gurnard, Skate, Smooth Hound Sharks. Southerly winds fish best. Need to be aware of reefs and sunken structures about the 200-300mtr mark from shore. More case hit and miss with these reefs but trust me, they are there and destroy gear big time. Lost my predator kontiki out there recently. Reward if found and returned.
